- The daily chart shows a market that has been bearish in 2017, though the overall market seems to be sideways for the past 52-weeks.

- There is really no long-term trend. 
- We can see a 2016 rally, but the fact that price retreated back below the 200- and 100-week simple moving averages (SMAs) show that the uptrend was weak and that bears are now in control of this market.
Bullish Outlook with Bearish Bias:
- I think upside from the currently developing pivot should be limited to 64.
- I think price would be rejected around 60.
- A break above that makes the 64.00 handle "final line of defense" for the bearish outlook.
